Multiple crises are threatening the people of our communities, our country, and our world, and menacing our very planet. Military and climate wars are destroying lives and the environment, and creating enormous flows of desperate refugees. Violent racism, Islamophobia, misogyny, homophobia and other hatreds are rising. Show up for peace and justice. Rise, Love and Resist with us this day!

We have marched, disrupted, and protested, and we will continue to do so, as we build the strong connections we need to create a better world. During this People’s Climate March, we have the opportunity to rise in solidarity with people around the world and unveil the violence and exploitation that many groups of peoples and the Earth face. Let's take this energy and direct it locally towards concrete changes we want to see in our communities and cities!

Meet with us an hour before the march to discuss the importance of talking about peace in the climate justice movement. RSVP and we will send details and more information!

We rise this People’s Climate March because we want to:

  • Stop the $54 billion increase to the military budget.

  • Transform our economy, our politics, our policies, and our priorities to support our environmental and human needs. That means we must continue to fight for a reversal of where our tax dollars go: away from war and militarism, and towards funding human and environmental needs. 

  • Advance solutions to the climate crisis that are rooted in racial, social, political, and economic justice and committed to protecting front-line communities and workers.

  • Protect our right to clean air, water, land, healthy communities and a world at peace.

  • Immediately stop attacks on immigrants, communities of color, indigenous, tribal people, and other countries and lands and workers.

  • Ensure public funds and investments create living paying jobs that provide a family-sustaining wage and benefits and preserve workers’ rights, including the right to unionize.

  • Fund investments in our communities, people and the environment to transition to a new clean and renewable energy economy that works for all.

  • Protect our basic rights to a free press, the right to protest and free speech.
